Be

About Face ~ Brent Harris

About Face ~ Brent Harris

The wonders

Of museums

Uninitiated cannot

Understand

Dark night

Illuminated

Life filled

A mother’s love

An old woman’s

Quiet moment

Patient, meditative

Reflection

Snow-covered land

Weary rest

Looking within

To see the future

What she hopes

She will see

Husband or child

Gone

Ahead, before

Not yet returned

From day’s labors

Night carousing

Lonely watch

Crier of what

What’s to come

Too late

That which has been

Is gone

So many, myriad

Possibilities

Directions

Digressions

Introspections

Misdirections

Exclamations

Explications

Accusations

Executions

Holy or profane

Choice’s refrain

Unexplained

Bold strokes

Subtle shadows

Lurking, diverting

Divining, defining

Light, contrast

Chiaroscuro expression

Based, biased

Displaying, hanging

Gibbous moon

Stars, sky

A crude hut

In majesty

Dark mansion

Implied transom

Searing sunlight

Sparkling water

Adam’s ale

Eve’s daughter

From which

We rise

Toward which

We strive

Poorest choices

Mud splattered

Fresh, mannered

Influenced, influencing

Paint limned

Offputting

Yet

Inviting

Exciting, echoing

A mirror’s sheen

Reflecting

Where we have been

What we may

Be
